WE FIGHT TO ABOLISH PRISONS.
WE FIGHT FOR BASIC HUMAN RIGHTS.
Black and Pink was founded in 2005 on the principles of abolition to dismantle the criminal punishment system and to liberate LGBTQIA2S+ people/people living with HIV/AIDS who are affected by that system, through advocacy, support, and organizing.
Black and Pink is a national organization with a strong grassroots network of 13 volunteer-led chapters and more than 20,000 current and formerly incarcerated LGBTQIAS2+ and people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA) members located across the country.
